Revealing the secret to speed and flexibility for data analytics

Most companies recognize that they have opportunities through data analytics to raise productivity, improve decision making, and gain competitive advantage. Unfortunately, the majority of initiatives fail to move beyond the experimental stage, or analytic insights are not operationalized back into the business as intended.

Getting started with machine-generated data

By Brett Roberts with Debra Slapak We are literally surrounded by data generated from devices and other machines—things like the phones in our pockets, vehicle sensors, the ATM at our favorite spot, cameras on the street, even the thermostats and appliances in our homes. As consumers, we benefit from insights generated when this data is analyzed and put to work for us. This, ideally, protects us or makes us more loyal to the companies that provide better experiences or outcomes for us. Increasingly, business, government and non-profit organizations alike are…

It was my niece Kajsa’s birthday in October. It was so crazy at work that I almost completely forgot to get her a gift. Please don’t tell her!!!

Power of Choice and Collaboration Liberates Data Analytics

Guest Author: Patti Mizulo, Senior Director, Big Data Partner Program, Dell EMC So close and yet so far. That is often what it’s like when you’re trying to wrangle big data trapped in siloes and extract valuable business insights. It can take weeks or months using traditional methods.

No wonder data analysts typically spend up to 80 percent of their time amassing…
